Transitional Dressing: Pieces You Need For Autumn

Transitional dressing, also referred to as transeasonal dressing, is the only kind of styling we're into right now. Gone are the summer dresses (we miss you already) and here is the cool breeze sweeping across the streets. Early Autumn people, we've got to just go with it!

But we're back as usual to take the stress out of it, and provide you with a lowdown of the transeasonal pieces you need to update your wardrobe with. No matter your style, find something you'll love that will ease the season transition.


Gilets in every style

The most needed piece is a gilet. Whether you like a quilted gilet, or a padded gilet, longline, short or maxi, outerwear is what we do best at Threadbare. Across our men's and women's ranges, we have a collection of staple gilets that are both stylish and practical for everyday wear. Our new season gilets are perfect for the awkward in-between weather we're currently experiencing. It's still too warm to wear a full coat, but cool in the morning, so a gilet is just what you need. Finish off your outfit with one of our warm and stylish gilets. Choose from sporty and lightweight or one of our thick and on trend puffer options. We have bodywarmers either with or without hoods along with removable hoods making it easy to switch up your look. Team with a long-sleeved t-shirt or jumper and nail the layering trend this winter.

Padded hood and duvet hem give off softness, and combined with a double breasted fastening with snap poppers, you're set for a cosy look without the hassle. Team with jeans and a long sleeve tee on warmer days, or wrap up with a knit and thick leggings for dogwalk chic. This women's padded gilet is the perfect layer to show your flair for the layering trend.

Colour pop blazer

Just because spring/summer is nearly over, it doesn't mean you can't still work colour into your wardrobe. Green is the best shade for the new season. It looks fresh and works well against black or white, but also with both a light wash denim or a mid wash. There are no limits when it comes to what you can wear green with. That's why we decided our must-have bouclé blazer just had to come in the hue too. Be the envy of the Parisian pack in our Threadbare bouclé blazer, the perfect piece to uplevel your style. In a woven bouclé fabric that resembles luxe French tweed, this blazer in this year's hottest shade will add sophistication to any look. Featuring a full white lining, this textured blazer has shoulder padding for added lift and two functional front pockets, finished with a chest pocket. The revere collar and lapel create a chic silhouette while the double breasted fastening keeps it stylish. Finished with three military-inspired gold buttons on each side. Team with a light wash jean, tee and chunky trainers for a just-throw-it-on look without the effort. Choose your favourite shade here.

Short sleeve sweats

You can't go wrong with a sweatshirt, but we've elevated it to make it much cooler and even more practical. With transitional dressing, we always have the weather in mind, which is why we knew short sleeves on a sweatshirt could answer many hopes. Casual and practical meet comfortable and stylish. Uplevel your summer essentials with our Threadbare short sleeve sweatshirt. Coming in denim blue, camel and navy, this is a simple, sports luxe piece that you can't find everywhere. This Threadbare sweatshirt has short sleeves for those warmer days and has a relaxed, with a drop-shoulder fit for maximum comfort. With a ribbed neck and hem, it's finished with Threadbare embroidery on the chest for signature brand appeal. Perfect to throw on over any outfit.
